"This isn't slashdot. Please have something to say before you post. Also, wait until you're another five or six decades older before you try to get away with the expression 'well-nigh.'"
Other than the incorrect mythology reference, I stand by my original post. I agree that intimidation is part of Cisco's plan, but not the whole of it. If possible, they would also like to have been able to undo the release of the information, which they have failed to do.
As for the use of "well nigh", the term was used quite properly. In contemporary English usage, there is no restriction upon the use of the term to persons of any particular age group.
